BPS athletics department under investigation for possibly misspending funds
BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – The athletics department for the Boston school district is under investigation for possibly misspending funds.
According to The Boston Globe, those funds are related to the purchase of equipment and supplies. Officials said it first came to their attention in April when employees were buying supplies without following the proper protocol.
The State Inspector General's Office, the Boston Finance Commission and Boston police have opened up separate investigations. The agencies aren't sharing many details, but the school department told the newspaper they have hired an external auditor to gauge the full extent of the problem.
The athletics department oversees $3.1 million in spending.
